Well, I'm frustrated. I just completed 3 weeks off Synthroid & Cytomel to prep for lab work. No thyrogen shots for me this time- I lost my health insurance. So I wrote before about how I feel BETTER off than on the meds. I never hit that wall that I have before and most everyone does being hypo. I've felt tired from time to time but workouts have kept up, long walks with the dogs and all my daily activites have been unaffected. I called and talked at length with then nurse before my lab work about all my symptoms ON the meds . Anxiety, hair falling out, nervousness, stomach issues,and did I mention ANXIETY!! (yes, the worse!) Since going off, I've felt calm , relaxed, not a minute of anxiousness. I love the change!!
SO! I did the blood work and just got a call. "you TSH is high enough, Thyroglobulin will be back this afternoon, resume your meds" !!!!!!
I asked about the call I had last week, which turns out she knew nothing about. She said STILL go back on regular meds/doses and I'll send a note to the doctor about what you said.
So now what ?
Oh and I had to ask for the numbers, but TSH is 31.95 I'm embarrassed to say, I'm not sure what that means. Good, bad ? They are happy with it apparently but then they are happy with supressed numbers as well and it's not working for me at all !
Any ideas what to do now?
They are calling back this afternoon but in the mean time I get to pop a few pills that are going to send me back to a place I don't want to go......Anxiety town. :(
